Ingredients: 

For the dough:

  • approx. 4 dl lukewarm water

  • 2 pinches of salt

  • 2 tbsp oil

  • 60 dkg flour (BL80)

  • half a tbsp sugar

  • 3 dkg yeast

Toppings:

  • Dill

  • Apricot jam

  • Walnut

  • Cocoa, chocolate cream or hazelnut spread

Instructions: 

Preparation of the dough:

1. Add half a tablespoon of sugar to 4dl of lukewarm water then add the yeast as well. Once the yeast has been activated, we can mix it with the flour, the oil, and the salt. Mix thoroughly and knead.

2. When the dough is fairly smooth and slightly sticky, put it into a previously oiled bowl, let it rise until the dough doubles.

3. When risen, divide it into eight equal parts, round dumplings out of them, and leave them to rest for another 10 minutes before preparing the flatbreads.

4. Shape them, then deep fry them in hot oil. Don’t be afraid to get creative with the toppings.
